Every year in the United States, hurricane season spans from June to November, with South Florida frequently experiencing storms that can cause significant damage to homes and businesses throughout the Tri-County area. Often, this damage may not be immediately noticeable to the naked eye, which is why professional roofing services are important during hurricane season.

The combination of South Florida’s heavy rain, high humidity, and strong sun can place a strain on roofing structures. Regular roof maintenance and investing in new roofs (when needed) are viable investments for home and business owners. At STS Impact Windows, Doors & Roofing, we offer a comprehensive range of roofing services for both residential and commercial clients, including roof maintenance, repairs, and new roof construction to Boca Raton and the Tri-County area.

Detecting storm damage on a roof requires a professional roofing company because it is often not visible without a comprehensive roof inspection. A qualified roofing company can accurately assess if your roof has sustained damage such as loose, missing, or impaired shingles, flashing, or fascia.

Roof Inspection Process

Hiring a professional roofing company is crucial for maintaining the safety of your home or business. Addressing storm damage as soon as possible can prevent the need for more extensive, costly repairs or replacements. During an inspection, a roofing professional will identify both obvious and subtle issues, potentially recommending a replacement if severe damage is detected, accompanied by a tailored cost estimate.

It’s important to use a reputable roofing company with extensive experience and adequate training to ensure a quality service, backed by a service guarantee. By providing you with a thorough evaluation of your roof’s condition, a home or business owner can make an informed decision regarding roof repairs or replacement.

Types of Roof Services

The type of damage your roof has sustained will determine the most suitable service.

Roof Repair & Replacement

A comprehensive roof repair service involves diagnosing and resolving roofing problems. Regular inspections and maintenance can help detect issues early, which can help reduce repair costs and prevent further damage. Services may be necessary for damaged structures and missing shingles or tiles, growth of moss or algae, or blocked gutters and downpipes.

Weatherproofing

Given the unpredictable weather in South Florida, weatherproofing is essential to protect roofs from water damage and leaks. This service includes applying sealants and coatings that protect the roof and enhance resistance to water infiltration.

Weatherproofing Techniques

  • Waterproof Membranes: These provide a barrier to prevent water penetration and are placed underneath the roofing materials to safeguard the structural integrity.
  • Coatings & Sealants: Applied to the roof’s surface, these products seal seams and defend against water entry.
  • Wind-Resistant Design: Using impact-resistant shingles and secure fastening techniques help keep your roof protected from severe weather conditions and flying debris.
  • Drainage Systems: Properly installed downspouts and gutters ensure rainwater is directed away from the roof, preventing pooling and subsequent damage.

Emergency Post Hurricane/Storm Damage Solutions

Immediate post-storm assessments are crucial. A professional roofing company can quickly address any damage and perform the necessary repairs or replacements to mitigate further issues.

Roof Maintenance Program

A regular roof maintenance program is essential for both residential and commercial properties, including roof inspections, cleanings, and repairs. Early detection of potential issues by a qualified roofing company can prevent major damage from occurring.

Insurance Claims and Storm Damage

A detailed roof inspection facilitates the insurance claim process by providing the necessary documentation and photos to validate the damage. The roofing company can also provide a detailed report for your insurance company and a cost estimate for repairs or replacement.
